If you want to start a meteorological argument try to define Indian
There is no absolute meteorological definition. The term may
have originally referred to good weather that allowed Native Americans
to harvest their crops.
No matter how you define the warm weather event
though, it's always welcome.
Some say you must have a hard freeze before
the unusually warm period for it to be considered Indian summer.
Officially, Indianapolis has not had a hard freeze yet. We have had a
freeze though. On Oct. 2, the low temperature dropped to 32 degrees
in the capitol city.
This warm weather event in the middle of autumn can
last from several days to a week or more. In our case, above average
temperatures should last through the weekend.
Instead of a "heated" argument over the term, enjoy the heat of the next few days!
